What is Deregulation?
The idea of deregulation may be completely new to a lot of people, and this is completely understandable. For the longest time consumers didn’t have a choice about who supplied their electricity, when you moved to a new area you took what was offered. Deregulation began in the late 90’s and ever since then it has opened up a lot of opportunities throughout the market, but what is deregulation, and how does it affect the average user?
Simply put deregulation allows consumers to choose who they buy their electricity from. It is very similar to cell phone providers; you have the option of which cell phone provider to go with, you can choose Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, or another package. Just like with cell phone providers you have to weigh the benefits of each provider. It is this same concept that makes deregulation beneficial to consumers. Competition within the market gives providers motivation to have competitive rates while providing the best product.
Deregulation splits the electricity supply line into two parts. Your utility company will still deliver the power; deregulation allows you to decide who supplies it. The two separate parts makes things even simpler because you will still get the same electric bill from the same company; all that will change will be the rates. Now you have the power to choose the provider of your electricity in order to get exactly what you want; good service and a low rate.
